Banks and Credits
This is not your usual Coronet film. Instead of an earnest film about squeaky-clean teen problems, it's a dull, narrated film about banks and consumer credit which could have been made by Encyclopedia Brittanica. Of course, this sort of subject matter is just the kind of stuff that makes my eyes glaze overif you're really into things like finance and economics you might enjoy it. But I doubt it. The big clunky adding machine the bookkeeper uses is kind of cool, though.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: **.

Those were da dayz
Rather fascinatingly simplistic description of how banks work. Featuring many nice shots of old banks and people going up and depositing 3 dollars. I wonder if someone can do that today.
